Memorials inside Canterbury - All Saints Church, Kent, England

William Somner, historian and native of Canterbury, who published his work titled Canterbury in 1640, mentions some grave stones remaining in All Saints Church in his time, of persons of good account buried in it.

St. Mary's chapel

Roger Brent, an alderman, and thrice mayor of this city, who died in 1486, and as appears by his Will, was a good benefactor to the city. On his gravestone were the arms of Brent, impaling Lee.

John Coleman, of this parish, who lies buried in our Lady's chapel, in this church, by his Will anno 1535.

On another gravestone were the arms of Apulderfield, impaling Evering.

On another, two chevrons, impaling three chevronels.

In one of the windows were the arms of archbishop Morton.

All which have been long since obliterated.

The following inscriptions on gravestones are among others remaining in it:

One for Margaret, wife of Daniel Lister, obt. 1621.
